Giveaway: Nightfall by Ellen Connor
June 10, 2011 at 5:00 am
Earlier this week, I featured Nightfall as one of my anticipated books on my June 2011 Releases post. I’d been looking forward to this book for quite a while. “Ellen Connor” is actually the writing team of Carrie Lofty and Ann Aguirre. And, with a team like that, I had pretty high expectations.
Here’s the description of Nightfall:
Their instincts will save them.
Their passion will transform them.
Growing up with an unstable, often absent father who preached about the end of the world, Jenna never thought, in her wildest nightmares, that his predictions would come true. Or that he would have a plan in place to save her–one that includes the strong, stoic man who kidnaps and takes her to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest.
The mysterious ex-Marine named Mason owes a life-debt to Jenna’s father. Skilled and steadfast, he’s ready for the Change, but Jenna proves tough to convince. Until the power grid collapses and the mutant dogs attack–vicious things that reek of nature gone wrong.
When five strangers appear, desperate to escape the bloodthirsty packs, Jenna defies her protector and rescues them. As technology fails and the old world falls away, Jenna changes too, forever altered by supernatural forces. To fight for their future, she and Mason must learn to trust their instinctive passion–a flame that will see them through the bitter winter, the endless nights, and the violence of a new Dark Age.
I read Nightfall earlier this week, and I can tell you, it lived up to all those high expectations. You don’t want to miss this book!
Co-author Ann Aguirre has generously offered a book to be given away a a lucky commenter.
So, in the comments below, tell me: when technology dies and magic is in its ascendency, what 3 things would you make sure you had with you in your bunker? (Remember, technology is d-e-a-d. No computers, phones, ereaders, etc)
